July 2023 Red Wine of the Month
This spicy variety is one of the five major grape varieties grown in Bordeaux, France. Widely used as a key component in the great red blends produced in the most prestigious wine regions of France. This variety is also grown in Italy, the United States, and Chile. Cabernet Franc is well recognized for its bell pepper and herb aromas and flavors. The savory-spicy character of our 2019 vintage Cabernet Franc was complemented with a touch of Petite Sirah from the same vineyards in Clarksburg, California. This food-friendly and versatile wine may be enjoyed with a wide variety of foods and cheeses.
